Description of group:
The Malaria Advocacy Working Group (MAWG) coordinates RBM's advocacy efforts, to increase the allocation of resources for malaria control for scaling-up malaria prevention, treatment, and operational research. Key recommendations are included in the Global Advocacy Framework (2012 Update).
The purpose of the MAWG is three-fold. Its first role is to provide strategic counsel to the Partnership and Partnership Secretariat on advocacy. Secondly, it consults with other working groups to produce timely and accurate information and tools for use in advocacy. Linked to this it provides information on opportunities for effective advocacy at global, regional and national level. Finally, it works with RBM Partners and working groups to ensure the wide dissemination of accurate information on resource allocations to inform the malaria community of current status and improve accountability both by donors and implementers.
